A Redondilla with Hurricane theme challenge at Poetry Place Café
Irma vs Florida et al

In a marathon tantrum she
sucked up the ocean and then spit
it out, a kid throwing a fit
with the power to fall a tree.

Land dwellers watch the storm's decree.
To flee or stay they must submit
to the will of the wind's cruel hit
until she moves on finally.

Back through the water and debris
they return to reclaim some bit
of their life before Irma split
their safe world irrefutably
                    ~~Judi Van Gorder.
